It was a first commission for both of us. Think that might be a trick of the light. I do agree his came out better than mine.
Here are some pics of my friend's acquisitions over at Peter Lee's place. Trousers, sports coat and shirt The sports coat is more the color in the first pic (my camera failed me on the other pics, but you get the idea):
Thanks guys. To answer some questions: Yes it is 100% cashmere. Used to live in and travel often to Montreal, wanted to make sure the negative 40 degree days didn't get me down Looks like I misplaced my side by side shoulder shot. I'll retake one and post. They are pretty different. In terms of Chan vs Peter Lee. I like the price to quality point on Peter. I do agree Chan did an overall better job (looking at the back and arms). I guess there is no way I...
Hi, This is the second post from my trip to Hong Kong (first one can be seen here: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=200513). Below are some of my acquisitions from WW Chan. WW Chan - Blue suit and shirt I first got measured and selected my fabrics in July at one of Chan's NYC visits to the Hilton in Midtown (by Patrick). I was recommended a blue suiting fabric (VBC Revenge) and picked out a conservative shirting fabric. Next time I saw Patrick was in HK...

Some close ups: Grey Suit: Linen Shirt: Seersucker Shirt: Linen Suit:
Sorry, didn't have a chance to take up close pics, will do this weekend. To answer some questions: - These are fully canvased, no fusing, Peter does not fuse (most of the Indian spots on Nathan road do, but the also sell "copy watch, fake rolex") - Grey suit was around $600/500 or so, maybe a little more with the real horn buttons - The timing depends on what you want to do: I had 6 days in Hong Kong and I worked with Peter to get the fit down on the grey suit for...
Thanks. No, no relation, just had MS paint to work with to block out my face. I'll try to take some close up pics over the next few days. I PMed those with questions on price.
Hey guys, I figured it is probably time to give back, given all the valuable advice and knowledge I have collected from each of you over the past few years. I was recently over in Hong Kong as part of an extended vacation and decided to get some suits/shirts/trousers made (motivated by numerous WW Chan posts and Slewfoot's Peter Lee/Lee Baron posts). My good friend from university and I had the fortune to take a week off from work together and travel out there. I...
Let us know how it turned out. I'm also doing a similar trip (going to HK for one full week) and want to make the most of the trip.
